How toFelt Food: Donuts
16 steps
What you’ll need
Light tan felt
Scissors
Small bowl or plate
Pen or pencil
Straight pins
Light pink felt
Polyfil or batting
1 sheet
Plain paper
Light tan thread
Brown felt
Hot glue gun and glue
Sewing needle
Puff paint (assorted colors)
Use a small bowl or plate to create a template on a sheet of paper. My bowl has a 4.5” diameter.
1
Fold your circle template in half. Fold it again. Cut out the point to make your donut hole.
2
Trace your donut template on a sheet of paper. This will become your icing template.
3
Draw out an icing outline and cut this template.
4
Trace donuts on light tan felt and cut.
5
Trace icing and cut. I’m making 1 chocolate and 1 strawberry.
6
Add puff paint sprinkles and set aside to dry for an hour.
7
Glue around the donut hole edge. Once dry, pull the bottom half through.
8
Pin the edges.
9
Double thread a sewing needle. Start the knot on the inside of the donut and stitch a bar.
10
Blanket stitch half of your donut.
11
Fill the stitched half with Polyfil or cotton batting.
12
Stitch another quarter of your donut. Fill with stuffing. Secure with a pin and finish stitching.
13
Tie a knot and bury the tail. You might need to redistribute your filling.
14
Glue your icing. I like to do the center first and then work the edges.
15
Hooray!
